Manchester United defender target happy in Germany

Published 1 Comments

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic insists he has no intention of quitting the club this summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, the 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with local rivals Manchester City also believed to be monitoring the Serbia international's situation at the Westfalenstadion.

However, a move to Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium looks highly unlikely, after Subotic made clear his desire to remain in Germany and continue plying his trade in the Bundesliga, after signing a new contract with Jurgen Klopp's side at the turn of the year.

"In January I signed a new three-year deal and I plan to stay," he told Happy TV. "It is a great risk when a player changes his club - how will you get around, who will be your manager, how long will you remain, how many of the players will be sold. 

"Because of all that I really believe that Dortmund is the best club for me.

"I have had the same manager for the last five seasons, the players don't change a lot and that is so important in football."

New Manchester United boss David Moyes will be drawing up a shortlist of prospective summer transfer targets, though it's not clear if a centre-back is one of his main priorities, after Rio Ferdinand penned a new one-year deal to extend his stay at the club to a 12th season.
